SELC Responds to FERC Letter Sent to Pipeline Developers

The Southern Environmental Law Center has issued the following statement in response to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s most recent letter issued to Atlantic Coast Pipeline Developers:

According to the Federal Regulatory Commission’s own certificate, FERC’s previous notices issued to Atlantic Coast Pipeline developers to proceed are no longer valid. If what FERC is now saying is that developers can proceed to construction without the Fish and Wildlife Service’s valid permit, it is undermining its own requirements.
